The harmonious intergration of this new development of two houses with the surrounding landscape and the Green Belt was seen as the paramount to the design approach. Both dwellings would be located towards the northern part of the site incorporating rear gardens that extend into the Green Belt. The landscape scheme is reflective of that existing where both houses benefit from cultivated gardens outside the Green Belt and natural setting within the Green Belt garden areas.
The design approach draws its inspiration from a traditional building composition and generally reflects the surrounding architectural language. The overall mass of the building is broken down by combination of simple geometrical components of different shapes and sizes. This permits an effortless setting into the sloping site providing a natural alliance between the buildings and their surrounding context. Simple projecting volumes attached to the main building elements enhance the daylight penetration and add dynamism to the building form. More solid forms characterise the modelling of the front to address overlooking and privacy issues. Certain elements are introduced to give an individual touch to each house whilst addressing the specifics of their location and orientation on site.
